For bettors who love football, there is one set of numbers each year that matters more than all others combined — the Super Bowl odds. As soon as the game ends we starting thinking about them for next year. Throughout the season, and especially through the playoffs, we dream of what the odds could be and how they could make us rich. As the game nears and you get ready for your action, here are three factors impacting this year’s Super Bowl odds that you should keep in mind:
Normally the public like the favorite. In this game, though, public money is coming in on the underdog. The Ravens have drawn more than 55 percent of all bets made. The opening Super Bowl odds were set with the spread of five points, but the action has driven that down as low as 3.5. There is a good deal of speculation that it may fall to the key number of three by game time unless something dramatic happens to shift public affections. Three is the most common margin of victory in football, so that would be a significant advantage for San Francisco bettors. If you like the Ravens, then, you should probably bet sooner rather than later so you get the extra half a point or point on your side. If you are a San Francisco bettor, though, there is really no reason to bet before Sunday unless you have to because three points would be so much better than 3.5.
The Super Bowl odds this year aren’t behaving like we are used to, and the total is yet another example of that. The public typically loves betting the “over” just as much as they like the favorite. Since public money is so heavy in the Super Bowl. we often see a total set aggressively high to begin with, and one that climbs as it is bet. This year, though, the total was set at 50, and it has actually fallen since being posted. It can widely be found at 47, and it could even fall further if the public action continues to come on the under. The reason for this is most likely that both teams are known for their long histories of strong defense. The Ravens have averaged 30 points per game in the playoffs, and the 49ers 36.5, though, so these offenses are both very sound, and the defenses will be tested. That makes this one of the most interesting Super Bowl totals in years.
